ADIEU Tee2Envisage.

Hello my wordpress family. Time to say farewell to Tee2envisage.  Lately my blog has been overwhelmed with crafts and with a heavy heart I decided it was time to move onto where my heart really thrives….this gave birth to CRAFTEA HEART!  The name was quite an adventure and with the help of my two lovely sisters Craftea Heart was birthed. I hope to share many more with you over there…follow me on crafteaheart.wordpress.com/.  Bittersweet….time for the next journey!

ANNIVERSARY adventure.

One of those night we wanted to try something new and it didn’t work out.  After all thank goodness are in the city filled with plenty of restaurants to try out right?  As the night continued we ended up at Bamboo Sushi on 23rd.  I must say my half and I were more than satisfied.  30 min wait? Ohhhh that was a YES, please take our name down for us since the other two places were 40 mins to 2.5 hrs.  Ordered our drinks as we waited and oh did my lychee martini made my experience that much more enjoyable.  Sat down and the half went bonkers on ordering our food.  I must say every dish ordered was satisfying.  The service was great and the food was a bonus.  Overall experience was awesome…you bet we will be back!  Cheers to an additional year to our life together.  Below are the starters and dishes we ordered (the lights were dimmed and romantic).  The edamame was on the house! Quite rare at many japanese restaurants now and days.  MUST try if you live here or are dropping into Portland on one of your adventures.  You won’t be dissappointed.bamboosushi_tee2enivsage

What sushi places would you recommend in Portland or in your city?  Please share.

MERCI BEAUCOP

About two and some weeks ago my manager said, “I have something for you!” I thought oh ok no big thing…thought it was a project. When you least expect it things happen. A thank very much gift. Appreciation goes a long way and this reminds me keep going.

We ordered a pie topped with sweet fennel sausage, roasted peppers, provolone and the love added prosciutto. Such a nice touch to our pie–it was complete and tasty.

A touch of lemon in the water is always needed! What restaurant(s) have you tried as of late? Please share because I might just have to stop by when I am in the area.

DIY MINI CARDS

A month filled with birthdays and celebrations.  I thought it would be fitting to make mini cards to go with the gifts.  Self-art inspired by chevron, stripe, and line patterns.  Simple, chic, and pretty cards.  A touch of love and effort.

DIY message in a JAR.

As promised here is the message in a jar post I made for Mel’s farewell-new job-birthday celebrations.

DIYMESSAGEINAJAR_TEE2ENVISAGE

WHAT YOU NEED:

1} A jar to store your messages (Jar from dollar tree)

2} A pile of 3×2″ white papers (computer paper is just fine)

3} A bunch of four inch strings for your guest to tie their message ( I used hemp strings)

4} Two card 8 x 12″ board pieces (cardboard from old boxes)

5} Utensils for your guest to write with.  Sharpies never a bad idea.

6} AND your creativity!

Message in a jar can be made for any occasion.  Its like a jar of reminders to boost ya up just when ya need it!  A gift that is thoughtful, unique, and filled with greatness.  Perfect gift for Mel as she left PDX–a little message from EVERYONE.  A bunch of messages for her to read when the homesick feeling rolls around.  The white cap was too plain I had to fancy it up with words and some colors.  The cap with SIX words I felt was necessary for her new chapter: perseverance, resilient, believe, hope, faith, and love.   Have fun creating your jar filled with messages for your love one.  Please share if you do–I would love to see the jar you create.

EIGHT DAYS!

8DAYS_TEE2ENVISAGE

What is this Sweetest day people are talking about?  Another imitation of Valentines day I thought to myself.  I paid it no mind and didn’t bother to do more research until a few friends this weekend asked me what do I have planned for my half?  I said with confidence, “This girls GOT IT! She’s  got it, she’s  got it!” as I’m dancing in a circle. *giggles*   Ohhh I was being silly.

Sweetest day is a holiday mostly celebrated in the Great lakes region.  A day of opportunity to celebrate remembrance of the sick, the aged and orphans, and any friends, relatives, and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.  Like I said, “another imitated V-Day!”.

At the get together last week one of my guy friend mentioned this day and said, “SWEETEST day is made for girls to spoil the guys for once.  I thought hmmm…it sounds great…BUT it wasn’t meant for that!  I told him give me one reason why it should be for the girls to splurge on the guys for once.  His answer:  “It will show your appreciation and love for the guys, but when you do that it will be reciprocated.  Love comes full circle anyways.  Men work hard…we put you ladies first everyday.”  I personally never really celebrated Valentines day.  I feel that the love should be shared everyday and when days like this comes around its a reminder to keep the lovin’ flowing.  ANYWAYS…I took my love one to the DAVE CHAPPELLE SHOW for some great laughs last night!  Celebrating a just because day. *SMILES*

What do you have gathered for your SWEETHEART?  You still have exactly 8 days.  Get on it.  Have a lovely SUNDAY!
